9-30-2013 ~ Monday Mealtime

Anyone figure out what they're making/having? I'm undecided between 1) yesterday's planned leftovers of burgers and 'dogs and adding to the leftover potato salad or 2) making a light sauce of sauteed mushrooms, garlic, parsley and a bit of lemon zest and using it for one of the Primo Pasta ravioli packages I bought to try. Himself wants tradition red sauce for the second package - I have jars on hand. The first one is less work, the second sounds more interesting to my taste buds. Whatever, the one not made will probably be for tomorrow night.

Simple fare tonight....Ham sammiches (good ol' Smithfield ham), tossed salad, an adult beverage, or three, whilst watching the game.

Couple bites of a tuna sub DH brought home for lunch, a handful of almonds, and some grapes.

I made a near perfect tasting marinara sauce today. For once I didn't overwhelm it with herbs and I started with plain tomatoes rather than spike up a jar of my usual sauce. Maybe that's the difference. It's going in baked rigatoni with cooked sliced Italian sausage under a blanket of cheeses. Some garlic bread and ice cream.

Sometimes it's nice to have a real "tomatoey" tasting sauce instead of a (an overly) spiced up one.

I didn't really eat lunch today and my plans to make Swedish meatballs gave way to me eating a plate of Cincinnati chili around 5:00.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I made Spaghetti Bolognese earlier, and the remainder of the Bolognese is going into a mashed potato topped "savoury mince pie" tomorrow, with the addition of a few veggies.
